EVENT: Ride Against Hunger 2017
DATE: Saturday July 15, 2017
(RAIN DATE: Saturday July 22, 2017)
TIME: 9AM – 2PM
PLACE: Cups Cafe 126 N. Court St. Medina, OH 44256
It’s finally here! Cups Cafe’s Ride Against Hunger. You can expect all the same fun memories!
The purpose of our motorcycle charity ride is to raise awareness of hunger in Medina County and generate support for Cups Cafe; a non-profit organization existing to freely feed the hungry in Medina, Ohio.
We’ve combined the game of golf and motorcycling to create a fun, unique event. Our ride is similar to a poker run. However, instead of drawing a card to make a poker hand, riders are given a 9-hole Scorecard. They’ll stop at various locations (a.k.a. holes) and will draw a numbered golf ball from a bag. The number on the ball is their score for that hole.
There’s a $100 cash prize for the lowest Scorecard, $50 for second place lowest Scorecard, a $25 cash prize for third place lowest scorecard a $15 cash prize for the highest Scorecard. We’ve also planned plenty of other surprises for the participants of Ride Against Hunger. So prepare yourself for a truly memorable experience, visit Facebook.com/cupscafe for photos of last year’s Ride, and oh yeah…almost forgot…you should probably brush up on your putting skills.
How much does it cost?
Single Rider + 1 can Campbell’s soup + 1 Scorecard = $15
Rider & Passenger + 1 can Campbell’s soup + 1 Scorecard = $20
What’s the can of soup for?
The soup will go in Cups Cafe’s pantry where it will be served at Cups to feed a hungry guest or given away to a person or family in need of food. Please bring it with you on the day of the event. Remember, we are Riding Against Hunger.
What do I get with my entrance fee?
- A warm, fuzzy feeling knowing that your can of soup donation is going to help feed a hungry kid.
- Insanely good Cups Cafe Coffee & donuts the morning of the event (complimentary).
- The motorcycle golf course ride with one score card.
- Complimentary lunch provided by Dan’s Dogs.
- An opportunity to see a local non-profit organization feeding the hungry in Medina in a unique way.
- And after this past winter, the perfect excuse to blow the dust off your scooter, enjoy some well deserved sunshine, and feel the warm summer wind blowing through your hair. (What more could you ask for?)
Is my entrance fee tax-deductible?
No. We will not issue tax-deductible receipts for your entrance fee, because we are providing a product and/or service. However, at any time, you can make a financial contribution to Cups Cafe. In fact, you’ll have an opportunity to do so at the event. In other words, checkbooks are allowed to attend. (It’s for the kids.)
Are there first or second place cash prizes?
Yes. The participant with the lowest score will receive $100 cash and must be present to win. The participant with the highest score will receive $50 cash and also must be present to win.
What happens if it rains or I can’t make it?
Rain date of Saturday July 22, 2017.
Can I purchase multiple score cards?
Yes. Additional scorecards will be available for purchase the day of the event for $10. Additional mulligans will also be sold the day of the event for $5 each with a limit of 2 mulligans per scorecard. A mulligan can be used as a free ball draw for a chance at a better score or removal of one stroke from your scorecard. Must be purchased the day of the event and before participating in the Ride.
Do I have to sign a waiver?
Yes. Everyone must sign a waiver to ride. The waiver will be signed and witnessed the day of the event. After reading and signing, the participant will be given a wristband.
Is there a chance to win other prizes?
Yes. This is a fundraising event. We will offer a “pick-a-prize” style raffle and silent auction items. Again, the purpose of the event is to raise money so Cups Cafe can keep feeding the homeless, needy, and hungry kids after school. Bring your bike, some cash, a checkbook, and arrive ready to RIDE AGAINST HUNGER!
